Around the world, there is a heightened interest in citizenship policy in the policy domains of education, naturalization and integration. We are witnessing widespread contestations over conceptions of citizenship -- whether it be, for example, the challenges posed by multicultural diversity as a result of large-scale immigration in Western contexts, or the challenges of ongoing uprisings in the Arab world, as seen through the lens of the 'Arab Spring'. This book examines 'national' constructions of citizenship through its study of education and naturalization policies, uniquely drawing on a wide range of country examples - including Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the UK, Ukraine, Canada and Palestinians in Lebanon. Contributing authors examine 'national' constructions of citizenship in a wide range of societal contexts, including devolution, multiculturalism, ethno-religious conflict, post conflict and 'non-state' refugees
